Working through the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is no easy task, but well worth your time. Students and parents can receive professional help to complete the application from 1-3 p.m. on Sunday, Feb.10, in the computer lab on the lower level of the UC.
If you plan to pay tuition through grants, scholarships, work study, and/or student loans, attendance is encouraged. Both students and parents should have their 2012 federal tax returns available, however taxes from 2011 or 2012 W2s are good alternatives.
The priority date for the 2013-14 FAFSA is March 1. Be sure to take advantage of this opportunity to apply for any and all financial aid you may qualify for.
